    1. Press crushed peppercorns into both sides of each steak. Sprinkle with lemon pepper and salt.
    2. Melt butter in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Stir in garlic and wine, and cook for 1 minute. Arrange steaks in pan, and cook for 5 to 10 minutes per side, or until desired doneness. Reduce heat to low.
    3. Pour brandy onto steaks, and carefully set alight with a match. Let the flames burn off. Sprinkle spring onion and shallot around the steaks, and circle the steaks with cream. Cook, stirring sauce, until hot. Transfer steaks to plates. Stir sugar into sauce, and then spoon over meat.
